Wanted Boko Haram suspect accuses military of mischief

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos

One of the three people who have been declared wanted by the military High Command, Ms, Aisha Wakil has accused the top hierarchy of the military of engaging in deliberate mischief.

Wakil alongside Ahmed Silkida and Ahmed Bolori have been declared wanted by the military over allegation of having links with the dreaded sect, Boko Haram.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Monday in reaction to the move, Wakil who had insisted that she offered useful advise to the authorities in the past wondered why the sudden change in t their attitude towards her, saying “It’s interesting, now they believe me?”

On her involvement with the dreaded group, she wrote, “I know the Boko Haram boys. I have been in front fighting for peace long before Chibok girls were kidnapped. Nigerian security knows me too well, I’m not shady. Why declaring me wanted?”

While accusing the military of deliberate mischief by declaring her wanted, Wakil wrote, “I have had meetings with Chief of Army staff and his people. I told them the way forward, to allow me come with some commanders of Boko Haram and discuss with them, present the release of CBGs but they chose to do things their own ways only and never gave considerations to any of my suggestions.”

In maintaining her innocence, she wrote, “I want to inform the Nigerian people of my innocence and make them realise that I am in constant relation with the security personnel and they know where to find me but wonder why I had to be declared wanted on national news even mentioning my husband’s name alongside.”
